The Pilot House Welcomes Your Review:
"We absolutely loved the house it was perfect. It was nice to be able to fly right into the airport and walk across the street! The rooms are comfy and we loved the fire pit! This will be our new place to stay at the next hour aerobatic competition!"
"What can I say, my wife said it was the best month in forever. Beautiful, well equipped house with sweeping desert and mountain views, sunrises and mountain sunsets, aerobatic flying practice across the street and everything else Borrego Springs has to offer. Best Airbnb ever. Mary was a great help and fun to deal with. We'll be back."
"Wonderful home with a cool layout and awesome views of the desert sky."
"Great get away if you’re trying to leave the city."
“My wife and I stayed the weekend with my brother and his wife at the Pilot House and had a fantastic time!
Flying into Borrego Springs it could not be more convenient. A quick walk across the street takes you into the lap of luxury where you will find a well stocked gourmet kitchen, large entertainment area, and bedrooms that are large, well appointed and include private bathrooms.
The house sits back from the road on a large parcel of land that is quiet and private. The inclusion of a rented Jeep is the perfect amenity when flying in since it gives you access to the amazing environment including Anza Borrego State Park.
It is truly a unique opportunity to be able to stay at such an impressive place that has the feeling of a private retreat. You will always want to come back to the Pilot House, I know we do!”

“This is a beautiful home with a unique and absolutely fantastic floor plan. We were so very pleased and impressed. It was very clean and perfectly maintained. Very fun to be right at the little airport and get to watch the small aircraft take off and land occasionally. The host was very helpful and check in was extremely easy. We could not have been happier with this property and hope to get back again someday.”
5/24/20 "I feel a real connection with this home. "My fiance, Ryan and I had our first trip to Borrego over Labor Day 2019 and absolutely fell in love with the dark sky community and how peaceful and quiet it was. I've been dreaming of Borrego ever since and the other week - I even have a photo of the sunset behind the mountains across from my bed and look at it each morning - I decided to look up places to stay a couple weeks ago and this was one of the houses that caught my eye. The drive to Borrego was quiet and dreamy that night (it was a new moon) and the moment I entered through the gates past Doc, I felt completely connected. This place is MAGICAL. There is so much intention to put into the layout and design of The Pilot House. Not only is the surrounding area breathtaking, but the interior is thoughtful and stunning and the photos online just don't do it justice! I always felt like I was surrounded by the outdoors due to the layout and brightness of the living space. Every single bedroom has a view. Every cabinet in the kitchen, every closet in the bedroom holds every single item you could possibly need. I kept saying THIS HOUSE IS ME!! Also...Borrego Springs looks like a setting straight out of a Pixar movie. I'm a huge Disney fan so...that is big for me!"

2/18/17 Cora and Will got married at the pilot house and below is their email to Mary about the event along with their drone footage.
Everything went absolutely perfect for the wedding. Everyone thought it was the most unique venue. Along with the best location. Our only complaint is that the night flew by way too fast! Thank you for everything from your side along with Mr. and Mrs. Wisdom. We will be looking forward to staying in the Pilot house in the future.

4/30/16 Dave - Went there with some pilot friends for a golf weekend to play Rams Hill. The pilot house was terrific with accommodations beyond our expectations. You won't be disappointed. By the way - Rams Hill is one of the finest golf clubs in California - a hidden gem just like the pilot house.
3/30/16 Barry - My wife and I recently stayed at the Borrego Pilot House together with another flying couple, and we had a fabulous time! We were amazed to find such a classy and perfectly equipped home right across the street from the airport. The owners have thoughtfully put this home together with pilots in mind by having everything that is difficult to carry in a small airplane right there at the house. This even includes four bicycles and a car!
In addition, there is very effective air-conditioning, a gourmet kitchen with all the utensils you may need, new comfortable beds, large-screen TV, comfortable furniture, and spacious decks with nice lounge chairs that are arranged around the house such that one deck or the other will have either shade or sun as desired.
The large house sits on a giant lot and is very tastefully decorated. The arrangements of having a central living area with bedrooms extending like the blades of a propeller is perfect for couples travelling together. Also, a very nice plus was looking out the window and seeing our airplanes parked right across the street.
We have always enjoyed the many wonderful outdoor activities available in the Borrego area (hiking, exploring, star gazing, etc.), but a big drawback has been the lack of high-end individual homes to rent. That is now solved in spades with the Pilot House. We arrived, paid our overnight fees at the airport office, literally walked across the street, put our bags down and felt like we were guests at a luxurious guest home of the rich and famous.
While the arrangements are perfect for pilots, any traveler would love staying at the Pilot House. I can't say enough about the accommodations, but I can say, try it and know you will be amazed at how good it really is!

We had a GREAT time!!! Place is awesome and so is Mary.... Found everything we needed. Enjoyed the bikes too, hope that's ok? Aired up the tires and went exploring. It was good to get the girls "unplugged" and outside again. The airport looks great too....
